Welcome PFP Energy customers

Sit back, relax and let us take care of everything.

What’s happening now – key information

You should have now had your credit balance applied to your account - if you are no longer with British Gas you’ve been sent you a cheque. We're still processing debit balances and will update this page when we have more information. You should have now also received your final bill from PFP.

Direct Debit customers

If you previously had a Direct Debit with PFP Energy, we have begun receiving Direct Debit information from them and are currently transferring them over. We need to check this information before creating your Direct Debit plan. We will be in touch once this has been created and you’ll have the notice from us before any payments are taken.

If you’ve already cancelled your Direct Debit, or you just want to set one up yourself, that’s fine too, please follow the link below.

If you set up a Direct Debit with us you'll be sent a statement every six months, twice per year. It therefore may take up to six months for you to receive your first British Gas statement. This does not affect the frequency of your payments.

Your online account

If you haven’t already, you can register for your online British Gas account, and download our award-winning mobile app.

It’s a great way to stay informed about the progress of your new account. You can see the status of your switch and submit meter readings. When your account is fully set up, you’ll be able to manage your payments and personal information too.

Meter readings

Providing us with a meter reading is essential to making sure that you only pay for the energy you use and that your payment plan is accurate. If you’ve provided us with your email address or telephone number we’ll continue to ask you to provide a meter reading when your bill is due to help you keep on track.

Your tariff

We initially created a tariff for credit customers called Price Promise Apr 2022. It had fixed rates until 30th April 2022. If you’ve since moved onto a variable-rate tariff, and would like to move back to a fixed-rate tariff, we aren't able to offer you a fixed-rate tariff at the moment as a result of the highly-turbulent energy market. Please bear with us while we work to bring a competitive deal to you.

If you’re a Pay As You Go customer, you’re on our affordable Safeguard PAYG tariff. We wanted to let you know that because it’s a variable tariff, it will be affected by the new Ofgem energy price cap changes on 1st April 2022. Find out more about the price cap here.

You can find detailed info on your new tariff by looking it up on the link below.
